Board Meeting Minutes

The CCC Board met on March 19th, 2016 at Brad Caldwell’s house after a day of climbing at Big Rock, SC. Brad was kind enough to hook us up with home brews and food and let us take over his basement for a meeting. A number of topics were discussed, here's the highlights.


Welcome to the new CCC web site

It's long overdue, but finally here - a fresh new web site! We've made a number of changes, most of which are due to the volume of spam accounts we were managing on the old site and the impacts those were having on our email newsletters and volunteer server admin time. Here's what changed

Kayah Gaydish

The Southeastern climbing and conservation community lost one of its best people on Sunday, December 20th when Kayah Gaydish died from a fall from the anchors of a route at Hidden Valley, VA. Kayah was a mother, the Secretary of the board of the Carolina Climbers Coalition and the NC Conservation Coordinator for Wild South and she was known for her infectious enthusiasm for wilderness, people and climbing.

Nantahala - Pisgah Forest Planning

The comment period for the forest plan review has closed, but we have had some big successes this time around. The CCC signed on to a memorandum of understianding with 30 other groups that lays out a recreational and wilderness preferred plan for the forests. This is a huge success, bringing varied interests together to provide a united message to the Forest Service about what we want to see. The effort has been well covered by the media, here's a good article from Blue Ridge Outdoors that explains what the group is trying to acheive:

Annual Meeting

The annual CCC meeting was held on 12/11 at the Lake Lure Community Center basketball court. We went old school.

Congratulations to new and returning board members!

CCC Community Award Winners

At the 20th anniversary event we presented 3 awards to 3 individuals who have gone above and beyond to benefit climbing in the Carolinas.

Pilot Mountain Rebolting Complete

From Bill Webster:

On March 8, 2015 I worked with Alberto Luna to replace the anchors on Black and Blue Velvet. I believe that work completes the Pilot Mountain project that was started about three years ago. I believe that the work has transformed the cliff in many ways. Gone are the scary, old, rusty bolts and pins. New sport routes were added. Many new top rope anchors were set. If I missed something please let me know and I’ll be happy to go back and fix the problem.
